When travelling, protecting your jewelry and other valuables should always be top priority. But entering or exiting a country can be tricky because of inspections, security, duties, and the like. Check out below for some important tips to ensure a worry-free flight with your favourite statement pieces:

  1. 1.  Have It Covered
  2. ●  Make sure your jewelry is properly insured. When it comes to your homeowners or rental policy, jewelry typically is insured only up to about $1,000, so if you lose your $6,000 engagement ring, you could be out $5,000.
  3. ●  Be certain that you have worldwide jewelry coverage. Some coverage plans only offer protection in the US – not so helpful if you’re heading to Mexico.
  4. ●  Before you leave, have a current appraisal done on your jewelry and have your items re-evaluated to current values and replacement costs. Then, have your insurance coverage adjusted accordingly. You don’t want to be caught in a situation where you don’t have enough insurance in the event of loss, theft or damage. Source: Jewelers Mutual

  1. 2.  Carry it on
  2. ●  Never put jewelry in checked baggage. Instead, wear it or stow it in your carryon bag. If you wear it, take extra care by slipping a pendant inside a sweater or turning your ring so only the band shows. Source: The Blonde Abroad

  1. 3.  Proof of Ownership
  2. ●  You may not be able to pre-register jewelry if it does not have unique, permanent markings. Canada can apply a sticker to the pieces but that may not suffice if you need to remove it. You should therefore take at least some of the following steps to ensure you can prove prior ownership before you get to the border:
  3. ●  Obtain an appraisal report and a signed and dated photograph of each piece of jewelry
  4. ●  Obtain written certification that the items or jewelry in the photographs are the ones described in the appraisal report.
  5. ●  Bring any other documents you may have that fully describe the item—such as sales receipts, insurance policies as forms of proof. Source: EzBorderCrossing

Figuring out how to choose a necklace length that worked with your body and wardrobe? Luckily, we’ll share some tips in choosing the right necklace length for you. Read on!

NecklaceBased on your Neck

All necklaces actually touch your neck, so what’s going on there counts a lot. Necks have length and necks have width. And some necks have wrinkles. Long necks can wear just about anything. Short necks and wrinkly necks have issues to work out, so not every necklace will be a good fit. And do remember, as with any “general” advice, there are always exceptions so it’s best to try necklaces on, when possible. Source: JewelryWise

 

Based on Necklines

What types of necklines do you choose most in your wardrobe? You’ll want to choose a necklace length that flatters your neckline. A choker, for example, looks great with a scoop neck shirt but not so great with crew necks and turtlenecks. If you’re wearing a high neckline like a turtleneck, choose a necklace length that is long and doesn’t sit near the neck of the garment. Source: Craftsy

 

Based on your Height

●  If you are below 5'4' in height, collar or princess length necklaces look best. V-Shape  styles or Matinee necklace length will make you look taller.

●  If you are from 5'4" - 5'7', you can wear necklaces of any length.

●  If you are over 5'7" in height, you can wear longer necklaces any length. Source: StreetDirectory

BAROQUE


Antique-inspired jewelry was seen on many runways this season. Baroque is definitely in this fall and fashonistas with an eye for ornate embellishment will have their pick of gems and filigree with pieces well-suited for the halls of Versailles. Maison Margiela Fine Jewelry Pompadour Deconstructed Necklace and Pompadour Deconstructed Earrings give that antique inspiration with a modern look.

Simple and timeless elegance should be the style we strive for now a day. Let's go back to the day's of silver and gold, to the days of Audrey Hepburn simplicity and toss aside the neon and bedazzled color wheel of jewelry. The classic choices like that of Lara Bohinc's Silver Onyx Earrings are hard to come by these days. It is imperative and professional to have basic accessories that can take us from a day in the office to a night out on the town. 

KAVUT has chosen four basic, little black dresses from two of our favorite designers and Spring 2014 from ready-to-wear looks. These are most definitely suitable for both occasions and can be flawlessly paired with these four classic accessories from Bohinc's line. Mix and match to your delight and let that inner Hepburn shine through!
